Hidden Valley Nature Center - Riverside County


Located near Norco, CA. This nature center is one of the best kept secrets in Southern California. It is next to the Santa Ana river off the 15 freeway bordering Norco, Ca. Here you will learn about California wildlife and it is wild life habitat. The center has many nature classes you can attend. You must check their calendar of events and sign-up to take a class. During the summer they offer summer camps and other fun activities. There is horseback riding in the local area, so you may see riders on the trails.

This is what they have to say about their amazing nature center:
"Hidden Valley Wildlife Area is located along the Santa Ana River, east of Norco on Arlington Avenue, one mile west of La Sierra Avenue. It is set on 1500 scenic acres and has access to 25 miles of hiking and equestrian trails. Visitors can get away from the noise and lights of the city and enjoy the beautiful views of the river or the bluff overlooking the wetland pond. In the winter, Canada geese, northern shovelers, white-crowned sparrows and yellow-rumped warblers make their home here."
